Butler County is replacing the company responsible for its hazardous and electronic waste collection program.
County commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to enter a contract with Noble Environmental Specialty Recycling with annual automatic renewal options through 2024.

The program provides dates and places for county residents to discard items that are not accepted through regular garbage pickups.
Kelly said the program keeps a lot of unsafe materials from reaching landfills or from being dumped around the county. She said it also gets the items out of the homes, where they could be dangerous to residents.
“We’re very happy to have it back,” Kelly said.
